Jul/Aug 2000 Poetry


by Rochelle Hope Mehr



I read the horoscopes every day,
and they heighten my expectancies.

I must have an alter ego
leading a very glamorous life.

Today she is being told
that she should exercise her prerogative to wait

before she makes her move,
that more information may be forthcoming.

I feel like springing into action,
a coiled cat

sprinting out of its cage.
